Update from Carolyn:

I talked to her yesterday to check on how she was doing.  The answer is "not good".  She is currently scheduled for a laminectomy(back surgery) June 18th but she is going to call and see if she can get it sooner.  She went to the ER in pain  and is now on fentanyl patches.  In the meantime, her right hand has become numb and she has difficulty using it.  Imagine Carolyn without her makeup.  When she can't put on her makeup, that is bad.  She is reading the forum but it is too much effort for her to type replies with one finger on her left hand.  She said she will deal with the hand after the back.  They think this is a problem in her neck but first things first.  She does have some help from a nursing student.

Thanks for the update on Carolyn.  Will keep her in positive thoughts.  Please let us know if the surgery date gets moved up.

Wishing your pain away for you Carolyn.

Will do.

I keep forum members in my prayers and especially those who are dealing with some serious health issues. I have been praying for Carolyn a lot.

So sad to read about Carolyn's pain.  I hope she can get some relief. 

Thinking of you Carolyn and keeping you in my prayers!

Last Friday some of us met for lunch to say good-bye to Viola who is moving to Tennesee June 4th. We are really going to miss her!  At the same time we wished Laura comfort while she deals with her breast cancer.  I took a few pictures.

Great pictures of everyone!

You guys are gonna miss Viola the most, since she was local.  Once Viola gets situated in Tenneesee and has her internet back up and running, it will seem the same to the rest of us!

Travel safely, Viola!

Great pictures. Nice to see everyone’s faces!  Travel safe Viola. Laura you’re in my prayers.
